The former Mansion Inn has laid abandoned for half a decade. Before the walls are torn down to make way for the future, it will be transformed by local Sacramento students who will breathe new life into it with their art. From visual art installations in the hotel rooms, to live music, dance and theatrical performances at the outdoor festival, to a communal art piece that will be a centerpiece of the new hotel – we invite the Sacramento community to explore the answers to humanity’s most pressing questions in a public celebration of the power of art to bridge the divide.






The Grupe Company and SKK Developments are actively engaged developers in Midtown Sacramento. Their plan to renovate the former Mansion Inn to a modern, boutique hotel fortifies their mission of bringing vibrancy and redevelopment to the central city neighborhood, creating a model for urban, sustainable living.
